WhatsApp Users Urged To Upgrade Their Phones

WhatsApp, a messaging service which is owned by Facebook has urged users to update their mobile devices as a way of protecting the security of users.

This came after the messaging service announced that it will no longer work on millions of smart-phones that support outdated operating systems.

Smartphones using Android 2.3.7 and older, and iPhone iOS 8 or older, are affected by the update.

Techno industry head, Preetesh Sewraj explains the security threats of not updating your cellphone.

“The first thing you need to do is go have a look if there is an upgrade available for your operating system for your device. If it is, upgrade as soon as possible and that will allow you to upgrade to the latest version, not for just Whatsapp but every single other app that you use. If you don’t do so then you are vulnerable to hackers.” He said.
